Paul Siple: Boy Scout

Season 2 Episode 11 | 28m 01s

Paul Siple, an Erie Pa native, was a North American Antarctic explorer and geographer who took part in six Antarctic expeditions, including the two Byrd expeditions of 1928–1930 and 1933–1935, representing the Boy Scouts of America as an Eagle Scout. His first and third books covered these adventures. With Charles F. Passel he developed the wind chill factor, and Siple coined the term.
